# How to connect both inputs of a nand gate to a same node?

Hi im trying to connect both inputs of a logic gate, to a batterry connected to ground. Im having a problem finding the information about the sintaxis of the logic gates, i have read the documentation of circuitikz but there is no information of the available anchors, or the ways to connect the pins of the gate(straight lines, curve lines, something...). Also i am having problem understanding how to declare nodes to connect the gate.

Maybe i miss some information...

\begin{circuitikz}
\draw (0,0) node[ground]{} to [battery] (0,1)
(3,1) node[nand port] (nand1){}
(nand1.in 2)
(nand1.in 1) ;
\end{circuitikz}


I have achieve this, but looks ugly...

\begin{circuitikz}
\draw (0,0) node[ground]{} to [battery] (0,1)
(3,1) node[nand port] (nand1){}
(nand1.in 2) -- (nand1.in 1)
(nand1.in 1) -- (0,1);
\end{circuitikz}


For example i dont know what are the --, or how to declare nodes to connect and how to properly connect both inputs and the nodes created with another nodes. Thanks a lot for the information.(:

• Please show us the code you have so far, and perhaps an screenshot marked with the changing you want to have. Welcome to TeX.SE! – Mensch Aug 19 '16 at 2:18
• Welcome to TeX.SX!! Rather than posting code fragments it is better to give a full minimal working example. Currently we have to guess what packages etc you are using and this makes it really hard to help you. A MWE should start with a \documentclass command, have a minimal preamble and then \begin{document}...\end{document}. The code should compile and be as small as possible to demonstrate your problem. This makes it much easier for people to help you --- and much more likely that they will! – Andrew Aug 19 '16 at 5:54

Probably you like to obtain something like this:

With your MWE you was quit cole to above image, only one coordinate I change (actually I increase all vertical distances):

\documentclass[border=3mm]{standalone}
\usepackage{circuitikz}

\begin{document}
\begin{circuitikz}
\draw   (0,0) node[ground]{} to [battery] (0,1.5)
(3,1.5) node[nand port] (nand1){}
(nand1.in 1) -- (nand1.in 2)
(nand1.in 1 |- nand1.out) to [short,*-] (0,1.5);% changed coordinate of line
% between battery and gate
\end{circuitikz}
\end{document}
